Two PhD competitions were decided on 12 June 2015. The five groups of the Utrecht Institute for Pharmaceutical Sciences selected their best PhD presenter and the best PhD publication of 2014. During Departmental Day, five PhD candidates had to present their work in exactly seven minutes. This format is adopted from the Dutch Medicines Days, where the winner will compete for the national presentation award.

The jury decided that Mojtaba Abdul Roda, a NWO Mosaic PhD candidate from the Pharmacology Division, will represent UIPS at the Dutch Medicines Days.
